volunteering to paint a mural seemed like a sweet way to spend a beautiful fall day, until change of plans, you are actually going to clean the school basement.  but there under fifty years of student records and twenty inches of dust lay this lovely find. 

good morning, or goodnight.

only in western pennyslvania can you be on your way to a cherry orchard, when you get stopped in your tracks by the vintage landmind of your dreams. we seriously almost crashed when i yelled, STOP!  in prep for the upcoming table decor shoot, this was fate at it’s best.  20 bucks will buy you this.

life has changed.  somewhere between deciding to take a breath of fresh air and sadly leave san diego for austin, my car skipped across both and headed east.  for now, and depending on the day, the suitcase calls pittsburgh and new york city home.  ever read “city mouse and country mouse”? well that’s about where i’m at. making the best of this little adventure; the paint brushes have been unpacked, the canvas is prepped, and below are some of the modern birds that are providing inspiration.

i know i am not the only person out there that goes into target and does not come out until i have spent at least twenty dollars. it is literally impossible. liberty of london, is landing in target stores, making the trip even more dangerous.  best of luck to you and your wallets.

one of the main excitements of moving is the fresh start in decorating.  no longer do i have to plan around the posters from college or the crappy ikea coffee table.  instead i’m starting from scratch.  phase one.  something big? a bed, maybe the sofa i’ve been dreaming of.  nope.  starting small, with a vintage radio.

decided to treat myself.  you know.  for being responsible, doing my taxes early, getting my return even earlier.  and no, those two statements do not contradict themselves.  now i’m on the hunt for some of the following.

what an understatement. started with this purchase. thankfully it looks like there is a support group for people like us.  now if you visit and the kitchen cabinet doors are missing.  it is simply to display the glory.
